Tyrannosaurus Drip

In Phonics we have been reading words and sentences with a mixture of phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. We have also been practising to write simple sentences with capital letters, full stops and  finger spaces.  This has then supported the focused writing activities we have done within literacy lessons. It is essential that our children are confident with all of the phase 2 and phase 3 sounds before we move on next term to phase 5. Please continue to support your children by practising these sounds on a regular basis.

This week in Maths we have continued to focus on the composition of numbers and recognising that a number can be made of two parts. We focused on making the number 7 this week with cubes, fingers and songs.

Reception are still really enjoying our dinosaur topic this term. We have focused on the story ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’ this week in our Literacy lessons. We started by making story predictions, we then looked at which dinosaurs were carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We drew and wrote comparisons about the different types of dinosaurs.  As we read the story we also focused on how the Tyrannosaurus felt at different parts of the story and linked it to our ‘Feel it’ feelings.

This week’s ‘Feel it’ feeling was the yellow zone ‘pleased’. We discussed what this feeling meant, when we have felt this way and how we manage this emotion.

On a very rainy Friday afternoon we visited St Peters church to collect natural objects. We then used these to create our very own king and queen crowns.

In PE we are continuing to focus on dance. This week we were different types of transport and we had to listen carefully to the beat of the music to know when to move and when change to the next dance movement. The children then performed these routines to the rest of the class.

Well done to Lime class for their amazing class assembly on Friday, we are very proud of them. What amazing performers!
